It was hypothesized that West African rainfall factors would affect the accuracy of a long-term forecast the most, followed by quasi-biennial oscillation factors, and then El- Nino/southern oscillation Caribbean Sea surface data predictants.

Negative factors for hurricane activity include the Quasi-Biennial Oscillation, equatorial stratospheric winds at 68-75,000 feet, which are expected to blow from an easterly direction.
One major influence is the Quasi-Biennial Oscillation, equatorial stratospheric winds that, when blowing from an easterly direction (as they are expected to do this year), prevent hurricane development.
This second factor is a pattern of winds in Earth's stratosphere, called the Quasi-Biennial Oscillation (QBO).
Ozone depletion in the Antarctic appears to vary in a two-year cycle that corresponds with the quasi-biennial oscillation -- a 26-month cycle during which tropical winds reverse their direction, explains Mark Schoeberl, an atmospheric scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.
These tropical winds reverse their direction in a 26-month cycle called the Quasi-biennial Oscillation (QBO).
Labitzke grouped years according to a pattern of stratospheric winds over the tropics called the Quasi-Biennial Oscillation (QBO).
